)potted on and now in the green house to overwinter. The Achillea Cassis look really leggy. Do they die back naturally or should I cut them back or leave them alone? The catmint has gone a bit mad and the Geum are quite big too. Also do we continue to water the plants in the greenhouse other than just not letting them dry right out?

Sickly looking sedum

I planted this sedum earlier in the summer but it's looking a bit sick. Any ideas what could be wrong?

My runner beans(scarlet emporer) have gone a bit too stringy now and not very nice to eat.. The earlier ones were lovely. Do I leave them to die off then plant the seeds for another plant next year?

Insect bites

Somebody told me about skin so soft about 20 years ago. I had forgotten all about it I'll have to give it a go, must be better than smelling like fly spray all summer

Early/mid summer I get savaged. Use jungle formula spray and spray the bed too when its hot and clammy so the window is open. Still get bitten in the herbaceous borders though :-/
